I have a LW10U (X10 Wall Dimmer Switch) and I was looking to have it come
on to 30% in the morning.
What I have found is that no matter that dim you try and turn it on to it will
always go to 100% (on) and then you have to alter the dimmed amount after
From what I have read online this seems to be the only way it will work.
I get up at 5.50am to go and walk to the dog and my wike does not get up
until later. I had hoped to get the light to come on to 30% so I can see what I
am doing whilst I get out the room and then have it go off again.

I use the later type, although I can't find any of the single 2 wire dimmers available to show you ( Here is the double type though), and they remember their last dim setting, so as long as it was fairly low when you went to sleep, it will start up low.
The later plug in dimmer modules do the same thing, so you could do it with a table lamp.
With this, I have my bedside table lamp come on at 05:15, followed by the ceiling light two minutes later. Works very well.
